A loan of $625 helped to buy a 100-watt solar system with 4 lights, a television, DVD player and accessories to be installed in his home.


Ricardo's story

Ricardo is married with two children. He grows staple crops such as beans, corn and cacao. The community where Ricardo lives does not have electricity; that is why he is requesting a loan to buy a solar system to be installed in his home. This will be very useful for everyone in the family, since they will be able to have light in their home at night without having to use candles, and his children who are in school will be able to do their homework at night.
El señor Ricardo estaría agradecido si
Ricardo would be very grateful if he is given the opportunity with this loan to buy the solar system.
